Category Archives: Photography Tips + Tricks

for about the past couple months, i have been contemplating a little change.  to be honest, i think having a baby encourages one to really take a step back and look at how they spend their time.  as of late, most of my time is spent being a mama.  and in those few hours a…

  • Shari - I am super excited to see this change! I love your personal posts, as well as your photography tips. My blog is always evolving and changing as I do. Best of luck in your new direction. Thanks for taking us all along for the ride! ReplyCancel

    • {beth} a-dilly - Thank you so much, Shari! I am so happy you enjoy my personal posts as well, as they are truly what I love to write! Thank you for your support and for sticking around!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy - It’s been fun to see you morph and change and grow. And your recent changes in photography and now this strike me as true to the inner you. Bravo for listening and following. A friend recently told me how interesting it was for her to read my old blog posts — because while it was me, it was me at a clearly different place on my journey. So while you are in some ways going back to what your blog was originally, it will be with the beautiful new frame of reference you operate in now.ReplyCancel

    • {beth} a-dilly - That is so nice and profound, Nancy! You always know just what to say! And yes, I think there comes a point in life when you start seeing how fragile your time is and it brings beautiful clarity to start doing what you truly love with it. Thanks for always being so supportive!ReplyCancel

  • Mandi - I think that this is a great place to go with your blog. My website was originally a blog and I enjoyed it so much, and now it is solely for my business. However I also want to take a “part” of it back and take to blogging again. Kudos for you for doing what is right for yourself, and I cannot wait to see more post.ReplyCancel

  • Kim - Well do e Bethany.  I have loved reading your blog and I have learnt so much about photography from you.   I am looking forward to reading your new style blog.   Best wishes ❤ReplyCancel

  • Whitney - Oh my gosh!!  I love this!!  I’m excited for you and feel we all need to dip our toes back into the blogging we use to love.  I feel like once we got into the “photo business” our blogs had to solely reflect that.  I’m excited to see the momma and more personal side to you shine!  Blog away! ReplyCancel

  • Donna - One of the things you used to do (which I always looked forward to seeing) was your monthly recap of photos with lens and settings. It was pretty cool to see all of that. Either way – whatever you post – it’ll always be interesting if you are personally enjoying doing it. Joy has a way of shining out and touching all of those around you.ReplyCancel

    • {beth} a-dilly - Thank you, Donna! If you have noticed, I have been posting single everyday images most days on my blog and I have been including my gear and settings in each of those posts. Hope you enjoy!ReplyCancel

  • Petra - Hi Bethany, I just wanted to say thank you for everything you are doing for us! You are so inspiring and no matter what you are writing about I’m always learning 🙂 can’t wait to read more ❤️ReplyCancel

one of my favorite memorials to visit in washington dc is the memorial of franklin delano roosevelt.  there is just something about this memorial that always intrigues me.  it is a walking memorial, so you walk your way through the four terms of his presidency, taking in his memorable and strong quotes along the way….

i think one of the sweetest things to photograph is fatherhood.  there is something so real and honest about children and fathers; their bond and relationship is something that is so unique to the two of them.  just like mothers have a special bond with their children, fathers do too.  and it is something that’s…

when it come to photographing things like holidays, i like to have a plan of photos i want to take and be as prepared as i can.  holidays are something that cannot be recreated, so it’s something that i like to be really prepared for, in terms of photography.  this year was our first year…
